The Leslie David for Colette postcards offer a unique souvenir for travellers from far and wide. Unlike traditional postcards, these have been abstractly altered with daubs of colorful paint by the renowned young French graphic designer. Often touted as the coolest shop in Paris, it is no wonder that Colette wanted to team up with a woman known for her impeccable creativity and high-end client list.

The Leslie David for Colette postcards revolve around old Parisian prints that have been vibrantly revitalized. The lo-fi images are given a second life without being too overshadowed by the artistic strokes laid thickly on top of them. David has appropriately titled the series, 'Souvenirs de Paris,' since that is exactly what they are.
